How to Create Cute Bento Box Lunches

bento box lunch

Bento boxes are quickly gaining traction as a consummately portioned, clever and fun way to pack a lunch. Making cute Bento Box lunches has become a trend that many are following. So, if the same old triangle sandwiches are starting to feel a little boring to both you and your children, it may be time to hop on the Bento Box lunch train.

Bento Box

The first thing you will need to create these cute Bento Box lunches is the right Bento Box. To find the correct Bento Box for your kids or yourself you have to consider size. For adults and older children, you will want a larger Bento that can hold a good amount of food. For younger children, a smaller sized Bento box should do the trick.

Cookie Cutters

You can’t create those adorable shapes without cookie cutters. You can use large cutters to make cute shapes for your sandwiches, and smaller cookie cutters to make things like cucumbers into little stars.

Silicone Baking Cups

Brightly coloured Silicone Baking cups not only serve as an amazing way to separate foods in your Bento Box, but they also add a cute little pop of colour and visual impact.

Cute Food Picks

Food picks come in many different styles and designs. Food picks could possibly be the most cost effective and easy way to amp up your lunch box. In fact, they can be used for many different things such as skewers or holding sandwiches together.

Mini Condiment Containers

Don’t forget the dip! Small condiment containers are amazing for things that may require their own lid inside the Bento Box. This is great for ketchup, vegetable dip, yogurt or even chocolate sauce for strawberries. The good news is that there are many container options that you can include in your Bento.

Sandwich Cutters

If you don’t want to waste any part of your sandwich, sandwich cutters are a great way to go, and you don’t have to stick to cookie cutter shapes. They come in a variety of different styles and are easy to use.

Creating cute Bento Box lunches for your little one isn’t difficult and can be a lot of fun. All you need are a few fun tools and imagination.
